    Princess Haya to contest 3rd term for FEI top post

    Princess Haya, an IOC member, says is “very honoured for the opportunity you have given me.”

    Princess Haya bint Hussein, wife of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, will seek four more years as International Equestrian Federation president after members abolished a two-term limit she introduced.

    FEI member countries voted 103-3 on Tuesday to let presidents serve three consecutive terms. Princess Haya was elected in 2006 as a reformer to clean up the sport. Princess Haya, an IOC member, says is “very honoured for the opportunity you have given me.”

    Switzerland was among the ‘no’ votes and will field Pierre Genecand as a presidential candidate. The election is scheduled in Dubai at a general assembly held in Dec. 11-14.

    At its special assembly on Tuesday, world equestrian officials were debating how to improve endurance racing, which is popular in the Middle East. It has been suggested as a future candidate to join the Summer Olympic programme.
